Commonwealth College grants

Grants of up to $1,000 are available to junior and senior Commonwealth Honors College students, with priority given to seniors working on honors thesis research.  Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher and must submit a six-page proposal outlining their project accompanied by an endorsement from their faculty sponsor. Every recipient is asked to present his or her work at the statewide Undergraduate Research Conference in spring
2015. These grants of up to $1,000 are for direct costs only and do not provide a stipend or wage.

For application guidelines and a link to the online application system
(FGS), please go to the Commonwealth Honors College website or paste the

Students must work with their faculty sponsor on their proposal and submit the completed proposal online.  Proposals may not be revised online, therefore, students and their faculty sponsors must communicate regarding revisions before the student submits the proposal.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, October 7, 2014.
